Josselin's story

Josselin, 19, is single and lives with her parents and younger siblings. They all work together seeking to attain progress. This hard working young woman’s life hasn’t been easy because she started to help her parents when still quite little. Today she works selling beauty products. This is her work methodology: she offers catalogue items to her friends and neighbors. After a short time she delivers their orders leaving the products to be paid on credit. Meanwhile, not satisfied with her active customers, she walks long distances seeking new buyers. She enjoys her work very much because it’s tranquil and she doesn’t neglect her household chores. She can use the profits to help her parents. Besides, she is saving up to pay for a technical career. Because she’s an enterprising young woman she plans to continue selling beauty products but wants to set up a small store in her home because there isn’t any in the area where she lives. This is her first loan with MFP and she promises to repay her installments on time because she does not want to disappoint the people who make the money possible that will allow her to continue working seeking progress. Josselin plans to use the requested loan to buy beauty products in order to offer her customers a wider variety of choices thus obtaining higher profits.
